After being cracked on the head with a crowbar at the Colt factory in Hartford, Connecticut, Hank Morgan awakens to find himself in sixth-century England. Captured by a knight and sentenced to death by King Arthur, the cagey Yankee instead becomes the king's right-hand wizard. Though homesick for the nineteenth century, Morgan makes the best of his surroundings, setting up factories and phone lines, as well as introducing such strange customs as advertising and regular baths. But sixth-century England is a place of brutish behavior and institutionalized injustice. Using his street-wise ways -- and a bit of nineteenth-century "magic" -- the Connecticut Yankee goes about righting all the wrongs he encounters.
